Stand humble before Him!

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Anas ibn Mālik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “When anything distressed the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him), he would say:

‘Ya Hayy ya Qyyūm birahmatika astagīth (O the Ever -Living, the All-Sustainer, I seek relief in Your mercy).’”

[Narrated by Ahmad; Hasan (sound)]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said to his daughter Fātimah (may Allah be pleased with her):

“What prevents you from listening to my advice! Say in the morning and evening: ‘Ya Hayy ya Qayyūm birahmatika astagīth aslih li sha’ni kullah wa la takilni ila nafsi tarfata ‘ayn (O the Ever - Living, the All- Sustainer, I seek relief in Your mercy! Reform for me all of my affairs and do not leave me to myself, even for the blink of an eye).’” 

[Narrated by Al-Nasā’i; Sahīh(authentic)]

Ibn Mas‘ūd (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever says: ‘Astaghfirullāh al - ladhi la ilāha illa huwa Al - Hayy Al - Qayyūm wa atūbu ilayh (I ask Allah for forgiveness, there is no god but Him, the Ever - Living, the All - Sustainer, and I repent to Him)’, his sins will be forgiven, even if he fled the battlefield.”

[Narrated by Al - Tirmidhi and Al - Hākim; Sahīh (authentic)]

Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “A man supplicated saying: ‘Allāhumma inni as’aluka bi’anna laka al-hamd la ilāha  illa ant Al - Mannān Badī‘u as -samāwāti wa al - ard ya Dhal -Jalāl wa Al - Ikrām ya Hayy ya Qayyūm (O Allah, I implore You by virtue of the fact that all praise is due to You, there is no god except You, the Bestower of Favors, the Originator of the heavens and earth, the Owner of Majesty and Honor, O the Ever - Living, the All - Sustainer).’

Thereupon, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

‘ He has implored Allah by His greatest name, which when supplicated therewith He answers, and when asked therewith He gives.’

”[Narrated by the Compilers of Al - Sunan; Sahīh (authentic)]

Ibn al -Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:

“The attribute of ‘hayāh’ (life) comprises and entails all attributes of perfection, and the attribute of ‘qayyūmiyyah’ (sustaining) comprises all the attributes of actions. That is why, the greatest name of Allah by which when asked He gives, and by which when supplicated He answers is ‘Al-Hayy Al-Qayyūm’.”

O Allah, I seek refuge in Your honor - there is no god except You-that You should lead me astray; You are the Ever - Living Who does not die, whereas the jinn and humans die.

O Allah, the Ever - Living, the All - Sustainer, I seek relief in Your mercy; reform for me all my affairs.
